Vinylmation in Motion

What classic EPCOT attraction did you enjoy more: Horizons or World of Motion? Everybody gushes over Horizons, but for me, the humorous scenes and unforgettable characters made World of Motion the EPCOT attraction I hold closeest to my heart. So, I can’t believe I missed this Disney Parks Blog post back in January. Steven Miller, when talking about retro EPCOT merchandise, stuck this picture into the post:

Do you recognize this guy? It’s the Sea Serpent from World of Motion who is found looking right back at Christopher Columbus who is searching for the New World. Steven remarked that this figure will be in a future Park series.

An interesting piece of information I found out while looking for the picture above, is the Sea Serpent currently resides at Disney’s California Adventure!

Meet The World In Progressland posted this description on where to find the Sea Serpent: “he is hidden behind the buildings on the north side of the Hollywood Backlot, just next to the Hollywood Backlot Stage. He’s surrounded by some wooden barriers that have “Props Dept.” stenciled on them, as well as a few other props such as some Roman columns and a Chinese rickshaw.”

I’m excited about all the retro type Park Vinylmation coming out. WDW Ticket, Retro EPCOT Guide Map, Kitchen Kabaret… Check out our Park 7 Explained Page for a look at what’s ahead. What classic piece of EPCOT would you most like to see in Vinylmation?

  • Looks new-moldy…is Park 7 going to be new mold? Urban 7 gave me hope that the classic mold would persist in the Urban/Park series, but this is not looking good.

  • Yep… check out the next post above this. I’ts Park 7 explained. The set is new mold.

  • The Dragon looks like the OLD mold to me. Looks like Buttercup with a better paint job. Check the hands and feet. Certainly OLD mold. That would be cool if they mixed Park 7 with OLD and new molds. That way, I could at least buy the OLD mold vinyls and have something in my collection to represent the good ol’ days of vinylmation collecting.

    I am sure the Park 7 set will come out on the new mold, but this is a nice picture of hope nonetheless.

  • @Brad, you are right, this art is original mold, but it was posted back in January. That was about the same time we saw all the other figures we now know are in in Park 7 (Earful Tower, EPCOT 2000, Kali River Rapids). The concept art for those was original mold too, but they were produced on new mold.
